Indigo Furoshiki

I like working in mokume (もくめ・ 木目). I tend to use it a lot. There’s a soft organic look to it. I prefer to do it by hand as I feel I get the best results that way, but it’s time-consuming. I’ve only played with it on the sewing machine once and got very different results. I like what I got, but I didn’t think it read as Mokume. I need to try it out with other fabrics and compare the two.

木・もくmoku means wood and 目・め・me means “eye” and the two combine to mean “wood grain” or “grain of wood.”

Scroll down a few images for another take on mokume.
